Went to the Southdale Target this morning with another mom, after dropping the kids off at school. We got there around 8:45, it was busy but not crazy. Traffic flowed well and they seemed very organized. The store is nice and new of course, just looks like any other Target out there.
Most of the household items and food are brands you can already buy here – prices were ok, but not amazing. We’ll have to wait and see how their sales are. Lots of great kids clothes, good selection of shoes for the whole family at affordable prices. Toy section wasn’t huge, there were some toys I hadn’t seen before. Lots of fun party items, and summer items. I want to go back for the freezable ice cream bowls, just need to figure out how many we’d need 🙂
The crowd was good and patient, lots of moms and seniors. The lineup went fast and they were well organized for that. All in all a good shopping trip, worth going to take a look. I’ll be going back with the family for sure. No word yet on the grand opening events, they’re supposed to be sometime in May but I’ll let you know when I find out.
Here’s a cost breakdown of what I bought, hope the picture shows up, of course it’s the day I’m having problems with that:
– Archer Farms Sea Salt Caramel and Almond granola bites, 15 little bars for $2.79
– Archer Farms dark chocolate and hazelnut granola bites, also $2.79
– Archer Farms sunny cranberry trailmix $3.99
– Archer Farms monster trailmix big 1kg jar for $8.99
– Archer Farms tex mex trail mix 750g jar for $6.99
– Archer Farms chocolate chunk hazelnut biscotti granola cereal for $4.49
Because these are all food items only available at the store in the u.s., target.com doesn’t list the prices. I was happy with the prices, for comparable items I’d get at other stores in the city.
Have you checked out the new Targets? Are you planning to? What did you think of the prices?
